"Over the past two years I have had the opportunity to work with Ann Niddrie on many occasions.  Ann is one of those fortunate photographers with a great ability to “catch the moment” which results in memorable images.  My requirements in a photographer for The Roaring 20s … And all that Jazz! Festival were extremely varied, anything from strong images of imposing steam engines to fun and exciting images of an attempt on the World Record for the Charleston Challenge and Ann hit the mark on each and every occasion

I also worked with Ann on The Easter Sunday Funday at Everglades Gardens, working with children is not everyone’s forte but once again, her gentle, pleasant manner won over the children and their parents!

It is a pleasure to work with someone who is punctual, efficient and precise in  her work, I would strongly recommend her to anyone seeking a talented photographer."

"Ann Niddrie is professional, warm, sincere and passionate about both photography and the environment. More than a photographer, she brings her business knowledge and experience to the table. She is personable and flexible, an excellent listener and very easy to deal with.

Ann quickly understood the many facets of our marketing strategy and was able to bring all of them out with her skills, presenting our business in the best light. She handled much of the logisitics, organising models, times and locations for the shoot. She also considered the types of media and the ways in which the photos might be used, which meant we got the job done in one go, giving us a very useful photo library which is most impressive.

Ann has a talent for finding the right emotion and aesthetic in her shots and I highly recommend her to anyone for her skills, ethics and professionalism. You won't regret it."

"I am so, so happy with the photos Ann took for my business. She is a true professional who obviously has a great passion for what she does. I am so happy with the results, they certainly exceeded any expectation I had, I now use these images on my website and for promotional brochures.

I can not tell you how delighted I am with the quality of the images and the set up of the shoot. Her eye for detail and creativity impressed me no end.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Ann. She is an amazing photographer and business woman."

"Hi Ann,
Thanks so much again for helping us - the shoot was so professional and the photos are awesome!! I love the blue ones...actually there are many I love, which has made choosing favourites a difficult task!
You were so confident and creative in your shots. You immediately knew what would work and what wouldn't, and you encouraged us in the band to be ourselves and bring our own style to the photo.
Thanks so much!!"

Laura Corney, Musician

"Ann was a valued member of the Chase Alive! Meet and Greet Program Team, which operates in the West Head Area of Ku-Ring-gai National Park, NSW. The team of volunteers acts as an on-site resource for providing relevant information and assistance to the general public.
Ann brought to the program an outstanding knowledge and commitment to people and the environment in areas such as conservation, ecology, biodiversity, fauna and flora, to present in a holistic way. Ann has a wonderful nature and practical way of presenting information in an informative and understanding manner.
I found Ann an excellent member of the team who always worked in an enthusiastic manner and gave a hundred percent effort all the time. She was constantly updating her knowledge and expertise and I am certain she would carry out any position in a thorough, outstanding and professional way. "
